Mineral Exploration

The Exploration division of the group comprises of a highly experienced team of geologists associated with an expert panel of prominent personalities in the Industry. The panel comprises of Remote Sensing, Geophysical and Exploration experts.

Rubamin holds 8 mineral concessions spread over 550 Sq Kms which are strategically located in the Katanga Province on the Central African Copper belt which forms one of the largest metallogenic provinces of the world. These tenements are on the prospective rock formations which host the majority of Cu and Cu–Co mineralization as stratiform with other structural controls that have remobilized the existing primary mineralization by supergene processes. These tenements are encircled by various operating / old mines and deposits. The tenements have been systematically explored using latest techniques of Remote Sensing, Geochemical / Geophysical operations and Drilling which has proved the potential of these deposits.

Of these, 4 concessions are in the South East Pedicle with the Zambian style of mineralization. Another 4 concessions fall in the Central Lufilian arc with a potential to host Copper and Cobalt mineralization.

Additionally, the Group holds an Exploration Contract on a Gecamines SARL property for Copper & Cobalt.
